An elementary school Principal issued an apology letter to parents of students after their teacher absolutely scolded them — mostly Muslim — for skipping Pride Day.

Ontario Principal apologizes to students after teacher lays into them for skipping Pride Day

Principal Dustin O’Neil at Northwood Public School in Windsor, Ontario, sent a letter to parents last month, as reported by Elie Cantin-Nantel of True North, where O’Neil expressed sorrow for the way one of the teachers laid into students for being “disrespectful” and “disgusting” by not showing up to school. 

“We have become aware of inappropriate comments that have been made following Pride Day,” the letter reads, addressed to Northwood families.

“We are deeply sorry for any harm that has occurred as a result of these comments,” O’Neil said.

O’Neil further said the diversity at his school is what enriches it.

In a recording captured by one of the students, the teacher can be heard shaming her class for not showing up to Pride Day. 

The school reportedly had over 50% of students skip the entire day – a trend that has taken place across a few schools in Canada for Pride-related events.

The teacher can be heard telling her students that she understands some of them were forced to stay home by their parents and that their religion says they can’t celebrate homosexuality, but that they should change their parents minds, just like she re-educated her formerly racist father.

She also said teachers were so mad at the high absentee rate that they drew Pride rainbows all around the school as a way to vent.

Similarly, a teacher in an Edmonton school recently told a Muslim student he’s not welcome in Canada unless he respects everything that Pride stands for.
